Warner was sensational, carving up the Green Bay secondary. He made throw after throw after throw. It's hard to believe that was the same Packers' defense that finished second in total defense during the regular season. The good thing to come out of this game is how great Aaron Rodgers played.
Green Bay should be steamed, and not because it lost a game it felt it should have won. Officials flat-out missed two blows to Aaron Rodgers' head in overtime, and one was on the last play when Michael Adams nailed Rodgers in the facemask. The other? It was two snaps earlier when the Packers, not the Cards, were penalized. Huh? I thought the NFL was trying to protect the quarterback. I also thought the playoffs featured the game's best officials. Somebody please explain and make it snappy.
